3.8/5 rDev +13.8%
Not really a gose but a damn good and refreshing wheat beer. Hints of salt are present after more than a few sips with some briny flavor from the clams coaxing it out just a bit. Being that I am a salt addict and would prefer just a little more but this beer is a good summer ender and yet another interesting recipe from the gang at Carton.

On-tap at Barcade, Jersey City, NJ
A: The beer is hazy light pale yellow in color. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sourness are present in the nose.
T: The taste has slight bits of sourness along with notes of spices and salt, the latter of which lingers through the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is a nice choice for a summer beer. I really like how new breweries are rediscovering old beer styles.

On tap at Andy's Corner Bar in Bogota, NJ. Pours slightly cloudy, but not overly hazy. Nose does have the faint smell of the lemongrass, but it doesn't have that "down the shore" feel that it was going for. It's very light in body, which was perfectly refreshing for a summer brew, but the taste is what really lost me. I am a complete and total salt junkie, and I didn't get any of it at all in here, not from added salt or from the brewed clams. It reminded me more of a really, really soft pilsner than a gose. It's a perfectly drinkable beer, but to style, I didn't find it worthy of the gose label.

Served on-tap at Barcade in Jersey City, NJ
A: Pours a very hazy pale straw yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation and some faint lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall thin white head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film (made up of larger bubbles) and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light aromas of sourness and hints of brininess are present.
T: Upfront there is a light amount of sourness to the flavor of this beer with light hints of wheat. There are some lighter flavors of salt/brininess and hints of spices.
M: Light bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: An interesting way to develop a Gose beer with the use of clams (and it explains the name). Easy to drink and refreshing, a nice example for the style and one I would be happy to have again. A nice summer beer - glad that I have started to see more of this style from newer breweries this summer.
